The Abbey was wonderful. The room was very updated, flat screen TV, great appointments in the bathroom, great view, a Paul Bunyan bed! and a lovely room. We had two 80 minute massages which included use of the spa for two days and the spa pool. Our room was included. We ate at the Waterfront Grill and food was pretty... More

Overall a good value. Four friends had a great time. We enjoyed having 2 rooms adjoining. Beds are very high so if you are old and can't jump up, you might have a problem or bring a step stool with you! Rooms are quaint, very clean and nice. Don't wait until you get there to decide what spa services you... More

My partner and I had a gift certificate for a one night stay which also included one hour in the Avani Spa Suite. We took the opportunity to schedule a couples massage before enjoying the whirlpool in the private spa suite. Our room was charming and extremely comfortable. The service at the spa was top notch.

We stayed over a Friday night last week for one night, and absolutely loved it. Everyone was very friendly and attentive to our needs. The room, beds, and bathroom were great- just perfect for us. I was a little worried because we had an end room right next to stairs which I thought would be noisy. Maybe because it was... More

We were up there for an extended trip over New Years. The resort was great because it was cold out and we didn't step outside for 3 days. Going to the spa is worth the price of admission just hang out, the massage and wrap were excellent also. The meals were good in all the restaurants and the New Years... More

I've had several conferences at the Abbey now and each time found the room clean, well appointed, and very comfortable. Nice beds, furnishings, TVs, good wireless. The restaurants and bars are great, as are the lake and boat views, and I've had some nice times having a post-work drink around their outdoor fire pit. The challenging thing about the Abbey,...
